Valuable and informative
This is one of the few and very important books compiled by animal researchers about their sexuality, in which manners certain species interact with each other and how their sexual features may vary or change.
I've even purchased myself a copy, as I recognize it as an important book for both understanding the animal world, and for the support of homo- and transexuality as a natural thing.
The book is written very formally and scientifically, and aside from the intro consists of informative pages/chapters about individual observed species and their "stats". Not exactly an interesting read, but good for learning more about specific animals.
